Italian Meatball Stuffed Buns

Tonight, the teen and I had appetizers for supper. Hubby wasn’t feeling well, so he didn’t want to eat much; he tried to eat a bowl of chicken noodle soup and couldn’t finish it. I hate cancer, I hate chemo.

Well, anyway, I ran across this recipe and thought it looked like something that my fussy teen would eat.  I was right.  He liked it.  Me, too!

The recipe comes courtesy of Julie May at Menu Musings of a Modern American Mom.

I didn’t even change the recipe very much!


One can Pillsbury Grands, Jr. Golden Layers biscuits- pull each biscuit into two separate layers

10 frozen, fully cooked Italian meatballs – thawed and sliced in half

string cheese – five sticks, sliced into 20 small pieces

008extra virgin olive oil

Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

I took my meatballs out of the freezer in the morning, put them into a plastic resealable baggie and left them alone.  By the time I started supper, they were thawed out enough to slice in half.  Slice the cheese sticks into 20 pieces.

009Take each biscuit, separate it into two layers and set the meat inside the biscuit, then the cheese..

010then, fold it closed.

011Now you have a little bun!  Make 19 more.  Lightly oil a cookie sheet with olive oil, put all of the buns on the cookie sheet.  Drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil over the buns, then sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

012Pop into hot oven for about 20 minutes while you heat some marinara sauce.

013Yum!  Serve with the marinara.  My son made some dipping sauce with olive oil and a ton of Italian spices.

016It was pretty good.  He’s becoming a really good cook.  The meatballs were yummy dipped in his oil mixture and also in the marinara.


Cute, and delicious.
